Secularism is one of the most misunderstood isms in the entire American political lexicon. In this presentation, we try to get to the bottom of what secularism is, and most importantly, what secularism is not. The relation of the secular worldview to such ideas as liberalism, atheism, separationism, and accommodationism--among others--is examined and a status report of the contemporary secular predicament is rendered.
